Have changed/reversed receivers/transmitter and flashes every possible way but still the same Group B fire 1/1. Turn on some light in the room and it works again. Making a hard reset on any YN622C (press Channel and Group selector simultaneously and hold) make it work in the "dark", one time then its back to Group B faults. Set to "ALL" no problems. Group A:B + C works but i have only tried with one flash in A:B, and dont remember if I tried booth A and B group on the reciver. This problem when its "dark" doesn't occur on the 60D I've tried it on. But overall one have to bump it 3/4 to 1 stop to get the same light as Canon "normal". Manual it seems to work as it should. My YN622C is marked "2014 Dec". earlier versions did have som sorts of other issues. Check out http://photography-on-the.net for better Manual than the accompanying Youngnuo manual. see less

    It does everything claimed, does it well and is well made. These wireless triggers are very simple to use and they've worked every time for me. They proved to be completely compatible with my Canon 70d. I haven't had to replace the batteries yet, so they're quite efficient (I've gone through about 1000 exposures with them so far). If I could change anything: As others have noted, the little disk to tighten the transceiver onto a hot shoe are kind of a pain. Levers work much better. The glossy look is fine, but I think this is essentially a professional device and a matter finish just makes more sense for anything related to lighting. I'd like it if they were smaller, but they're roughly the same size as the competition, so that's just life maybe. I've dropped them a couple times on a wood floor. No signs of any damage at all. So they're decently made. NOTE: I am actually using these with manual flashes (but I needed something to fool the Canon camera into thinking it had a TTL mounted on it so I could change the shutter sync to 2nd shutter). So, while I see the various auto TTL settings in the camera available to me, I have not used them, so read another review for that stuff).

    Before i received my wireless flash triggers, I've been using a 32 foot ETTL cable to help get my 580EXII off camera as a master to control the 430 EXII as a slave. Worked great, but the cable was cumbersome and a tripping hazard. So i decided to go all wireless ETTL and after much research, there really wasn't many choices. The pocket wizard system seemed over priced for what it does and that it stands vertical on a camera seems a little out of place. Then my 2nd option was the Yongnuo 622C, for the price i wouldn't hurt to try it out, so i decided to buy 2 sets. They came in the mail quickly along with a set of Eneloop rechargeable batteries I ordered for the triggers. I installed the batteries into the triggers and placed one on top of my 5DMKII and the other two on my flashes. Turned them on to quickly test out if they work or not. Worked perfectly, the 2 flashes went off simultaneously ever single time i took a shot. Anyways, I am not going to get into the mechanics of TTL vs Manual - but they both worked flawlessly depending on how you want to control the light. Bottom line, i couldn't tell the difference from when i used my ocf cable vs my new Yongnuo 622C.And the fact that the unit sits horizontal on top of my camera is plus for me, personal aesthetics I guess. If you have any questions or anything, feel free send a comment.

    I'd been using the Cowboy Studios remotes for a while but they were extremely temperamental. After reading the reviews for the YN622 and seeing a professional using them at a recent event I decided to pick up a set. So far they are performing extremely well. No misfires. I placed one in another room to shoot my hallway and it fired fine. It's a great reasonably priced alternative to Pocket Wizards. I don't consider them cheap, just reasonably priced. It supports virtually (if not all) all of Canon's flash modes; including E-TTLII; 1st and 2nd Curtain sync as well as Hi-Speed sync; Flash Bracketing; Flash compensation, manual and multi flash; flash ratio....PC port triggering. In addition, since these are transceivers each until can trigger or be triggered. It's a complete product. Another pleasant surprise is the user manual. Having been subjected to poorly printed, sometimes unreadable manuals, I was thrilled to see a high quality user manual. In addition to being well written and complete, it's printed on glossy stock and it's in color! When they show pictures of what your cameras's LCD should show, that comes in really handy. Kudos to Yongnuo for showing that it is possible to provide a good manual. Unless you have a specific need for a PW, I recommend getting the YN622 and using the money you save toward getting an extra one or two.

    ***PROS*** -Reliable -Easy to use -Capable -ETTL -IR focus assist -Sturdy -Lightweight -Great range (Mine have successfully fired every time at about 50 yards through two walls, I had no need to test its limits any further) ***CONS*** -Manual isn't very helpful, you will have to tinker on your own or gather useful tips from other owners. -A little bulky ***OVERALL*** At this point in time, you can't find an ETTL transceiver/receiver that balances price and performance so well. The functionality of these units is up there with the big boys like pocket wizard, but the cost is more comparable to a radio or ir transceiver. I could not recommend these units more.

    So I threw my Pixel King units in the trash shortly after these arrived. I have absolutely NOTHING BAD to say about these units. I have used them relentlessly for tens of thousands of clicks and have had zero failures or misfires. The added benefit of being able to have a flash on top of the camera trigger is an added benefit. the fact that the triggers speak HSS insures that I can use them outdoors for sporting events, and can even trick a standard studio strobe into operating in HSS mode. I can't say enough good things about these triggers. FOR CERTAIN - if you are considering Pixel Kings, STOP HERE. Buy the Yongnuo's and you will never regret it.

    It's all ready to go, once you connect one piece to your camera, and the other piece to your flash. I saw from the web that the sequence you switched on these are important. One poster say you should always turn on 1) the camera; 2) the transceiver on the camera; 3) the transceiver attached to the flash; and finally 4) the flash itself. But in real practice I found out even if I do not follow this sequence, things still work. One problem I came across (not sure if it's my user error, but so far I haven't found the solution yet) is when I attached a flash on top of the transceiver on the camera (I like to have a 270EX II on top of the transceiver on the camera, for fill light). But the problem is when I shoot in HSS, the exposure is not normal. Only one part of the photo is lighted, and the other part is blown out. If I remove the transceiver between the 270EX II and my camera, then this problem disappears. Update: It turns out to be user error. when attaching another flash on top, you need to push it all the way in. The last few times I didn't notice this and leave the 270 not fully slotted into the hot shoe of the transceiver. I guess that's the reason I got half exposed shots.

    I have tried Phottix Odins and Pocket Wizards as well as simple radio transmitters. With Pocket Wizard you need the FlexTT5 trasmitter with the AC3 zone controller and the MiniTT1 receivers for the flash. A FlexTT5 with MiniTT1 kit will run you $430, the AC3 zone controller costs $80. A Phottix Odin set will run you $400 with two receivers. The Yongnuo YN622 set for $85 does MORE than the Phottix Odin or Pocket Wizard sets. You can get additional transceivers for $44, the better value is to buy the pair. The Yongnuo units operate as transmitter and receiver so if you have multiple units and happen to accidentally break one, you haven't now lost your only transmitter like you would with other manufacturers. I really like that feature, not that I'm rough with my equipment but it's a safety net. I've used these on a Canon 7D and 5D III body. They have not failed yet but I've only used them for a short period of time. I like that the led's are bright and give you a confirmation of everything working and being ready. Now for the part where these really beat out the other manufacturers, mount one on your hot shoe and you control all settings from the in camera menu. You can set the ratio, flash zoom, mode (ETTL, Manual, Multi) in the menu. Phottix Odin sets are the only other model I found that has an LED menu but it's on the transmitter atop the camera. With Pocket Wizards you need to use the AC3 to control ETTL/Manual and it's with slide switches, not too convenient to see the settings when in a dark environment where you would be using flash to begin with. The YN622's also support HSS if you are shooting outdoor and wanting to shoot at faster shutter speeds than your camera's default sync speed. I sold my Canon 430EX II flashes and bought a couple Yongnuo YN568EX units, they were not compatible with the Phottix Odin set I had so I decided to try Yongnuo's setup. Very happy with that choice. The Yongnuo YN622 tranceivers are an incredible value and provide the best function of anything out there. The only negative I have for them is they do not have a 1/4" lug, you have to mount them on a cold shoe, either the stand that comes with your flash or a cold shoe adapter on your light stand. Not a big deal but something I've been used to.

    So far these flash transceivers are solid, I was worried about them adding bulk to my rig, it is hard to judge their scale looking at the pictures but they are just right. Big enough to easily see the controls and settings, small and light enough to stay out of the way. I was using off camera e-ttl cords for my flash bracket but they failed constantly I bought these because I wanted the option of e-ttl on my triggers, of course if you are using multiple remote flashes you are most likely setting them manually, I can still use e-ttl if I'm just using it attached to a bracket. Not difficult to operate but the instructions are a must read. I haven't had a shoot that would max these out and put them to a real test I will update if they fail. My only complaint and reason for the four stars is an odd quirk in the communication between the unit and the camera, I'm using a 5d mrk II and a 580 ex II, you can not access all of the custom settings on the flash and when some of them are changed in the camera menu they do not relay to the flash, the most basic functions do but if you want to switch from ttl metering to the external flash metering you have to remove the transceiver and attach the flash directly to the camera and change this setting this is true for some other settings but in real situations it would be something that you already had figured out and probably wouldn't be switching back and fourth during a shoot. This isn't a deal breaker for me because they still work great but if your camera settings don't match the flash settings before you attach the triggers you will get strange results I thought they were defective until I figured it out. The instructions for my units described Canon camera menu controls that didn't match my camera at all so I don't know if it's my camera model or if Yonguo is out of date on their firmware and such, either way they are definitely worth it

    As an amateur, I tend to save my money for bodies and lenses rather than accessories. But when I saw the price of these triggers, I had to take the plunge. I couldn't be happier with the results. I have a set of four triggers controlled by a Canon 6D and controlling 580 EX II flashes and have used them for indoor product shoots and for both indoor and outdoor portrait shoots. In all cases they've performed almost flawlessly. I say "almost" because two of the triggers failed to start up immediately after I inserted batteries and flipped the "on" switch. Disappointed, I started pressing a couple of the other buttons, and voila, they came to life. Not an ideal startup procedure, but it worked, and they've fired up immediately ever since. Also since then, they've been wonderful. I tend to use them in manual mode, controlling flash output from the back of the camera. The channels and group settings make it easy (well, as easy as Canon's rather maze-like approach makes it) to control multiple flashes. And they've been extremely reliable for the past few months of weekly use. Pros: * Very affordable * Works for both E-TTL and manual mode * Good battery life, at least under modest amateur usage * Seem well made fit and finish wise compared with some other low-cost triggers I've handled Cons: *A little bigger than you might expect (almost a deck of playing cards in size) *Startup with two triggers was iffy but has been perfect since the first time *Channel and Group buttons are a *little* too easy to press. I've accidentally changed one or the other accidentally a couple of times. The bright LED indicators, however, make it fairly easy to identify the problem

    Using these with a 580 EXII and a 5D3, they worked perfectly right out of the box. Have tried up to 1/2000s sync, and the ETTL has worked exactly as it should. At this price, this is a huge bonus over the STE-2. And it's radio rather than IR for a connection. I haven't tried Canon's new radio transmitter, which looks like a great tool. But, the price is much higher too and you would need the newer 600 flash to take advantage of the RT. I don't use multiple flashes, so I can't comment on the groups feature. What this delivers is what you need - reliable triggering. I haven't missed a shot yet. A bonus is the AA batteries, which are easy to find anywhere. The only ding (and it's a small one) is they are larger than I would prefer. You'll know it's attached to your camera, but not large enough to interfere with lens handling. I chose this over the more expensive PW models and I'm glad I did. Does everything I need - reliability, distance and high speed sync. Great purchase!

    I was a little concerned at first because i was getting inconsistent results using rhe HSS. However, I realized that my 430exii flash fits VERY tightly on the Yongnuo yn622-so much so that I did not get it on the hot shoe completely. I gave it a little more push and it "clicked" into place. No issues since. And I didn't have to push so hard that I'm concerned with breaking it or anything. Build quality is very good. Works amazingly well and its the best bargain available around for radio flash triggers. Using it with the 5d mkiii and the camera can now completely control the flash remotely. Also the AF assist beam is pretty cool. It will be a bit too high to line up with the af points at 3-4 feet, but beyond that it will line up pretty nicely. Very cool.

    I was going to get the cheaper flash triggers by Yongnuo, but since my DSLR has ETTL metering, I decided to go with this pair of triggers. They work excellent for "off camera flash", and are very functional beyond my current capabilities. They are stylish looking, and pretty durable. I just shot an external flash project at the Virginia City, NV 'Graveyard' using off camera flash for fill light on the headstones in very cold and stormy/windy weather. My Yongnuo 560II speedlite was mounted atop a tripod and blew over and hit a rock, I though for sure, the trigger was broken, and the flash that was mounted to it, but to my surprise they did not break! There was a dent/blemish on the flash where it hit the rock, but still worked like new!

    I love these triggers. My wife and I are professional wedding photographers, and we are forever having issues with our Canon flashes working consistently when remote. Many times the Canon systems will only work as line of sight, unless you are willing to drop a lot of money to upgrade to the new 600series flash. We have two Canon 580ex and three 430ex flashes, and these triggers work perfectly. All I really needed was a system that could help me light the dance floor even when people are blocking the line of sight. These triggers fit the bill, the fire all my flashes from hundreds of feet away, and even rooms away. The Ettl compatibility is great as now I don't have to set all my flashes manually and can do everything from my camera. These also blow my pocket wizard setup out of the water. They are less glitchy, work in about any configuration, and are way cheaper. Bottom line; if you need a systems that does not require line of sight, is simlpe to use, and uses Ettl, than these will not let you down. I love them, I am ordering more.

    Very nice and inexpensive transmitter. I use this to trigger Yongnuo YN622C II receivers and they have worked without fail. Much less expensive than a Canon option and I'm so glad that I stumbled across this product. For the price, probably even aside from the price, these Yongnuo products are great and I am amazed how off camera flash has changed my photography, without taking all of my money. Of course, I have had flashes not fire, but I don't think I could ever trace the reason to this transmitter or triggers. My only problem that I had with this is the mount design. What I mean is that it mounts horizontally on your camera hotshoe. When you need to adjust your lights, and you always need to make adjustments to your lights, I would much rather have a vertical mount while shooting on a tripod. With the horizontal design, I (and I suspect most people, as I'm 5'10") aren't tall enough to look down onto the screen to make adjustments. This means you either need a step stool or you must move your camera off subject, tilt your camera so that you can see, then make adjustments. Of course, if you're off-tripod and just shooting freestyle, this is not an issue at all. Other than that, it's pretty easy to make any/all adjustments. You can control your flashes using TTL, Manual mode, and highspeed sync. I can't imagine anything that a Canon transmitter or Pocket Wizard could offer that this doesn't do at a MUCH cheaper price. As a matter of fact, after much research and comparing options, I was very close to purchasing the Pocket Wizard option when I came across this product. I am so glad that I chose this. Other than the fact that Pocket Wizard does offer a vertical design and maybe easier adjustments as a result, I can buy this transmitter and a bunch of triggers for the less than the price of a Pocket Wizard transmitter. Yongnuo option is a much better route because, with the same amount of money, you get so many more options in gear. In my view, this is a Pocket Wizard killer. I have only good feedback and would recommend this product.

    I use these triggers between a Canon 6D and the 600EXT-RT. I haven't even looked at the manual, I use my flash in manual mode - I can set the flash settings via my on board menu system in camera. Its like the trigger isn't even there or a consideration for me. I just turned them on and they worked, as if the flash was on camera. I will say that even though I have used them for about a year - my remote flash has always been within 20ft from me. So in that range - its been rock solid dependable. My second flash is a manual flash configured as an optical slave - a LumoPro LP180. In this configuration I only need 2 YN622's. One for the Camera, 1 for the Canon 600EXT-RT. The LumoPro LP180 fires when it sees the canon 600EXT fire. Perhaps when my flash skills increase I'll mess with the different options, but for me - in manual mode I am in complete control and I'm comfortable there.

    Back in the early days I got uber frustrated with the Pocket Wizard Flex system. The last straw was two brand new latest firmware transmitters with 10 brand new latest firmware receivers and a box (10) brand new 580EXII's and nothing was firing let alone consistently. Gave up on the kludgy socks and mounts "fixes"...switched to RadioPopper PX's. Damn expensive and cryptic interface...but they worked pretty consistently. BUT NOW...these kick butt. Bought 7 of them to push as many as 6 580EXII's and 1 as the master Sometimes using the pass through hot shoe feature on the master with both of my Canon 1DX's. Over the last two days - outside mid day, sunset, indoors with partial obstructions...fired off every time. Worked with older bodies, 1D4s, 5D (all gens) as well as a Canon SX40HS. Clustered 6 of the 580EXII's around the umbrella shaft in circular mounts in a big parabolic...worked perfect. Same setup with older 580EX's same consistent results. Super bang for buck...much easier to use than the RadioPopper PX's and way, way, way more consistent than the PW Flex debacle. Only weirdness...sometimes my cats and dog flashes (320EX and 430EX) will fire at full power. But I didn't spend a lot of time looking for a consistent pattern for the cause. I just adjusted flash exposure comp. The 90EX works as well as the 270's both I and II versions. Even an older 220EX. They use AA's...thank god no stupid, funky expensive not always available on location... CR this and CR that battery(s) Bottom line...glad I bought them. Absolutely NO regrets. The Radio Poppers are now relegated to the backup bag or the occasional crazy long distance maybe 5% of the time shoot.

    The reason i bought this unit is for the HSS function. It fires every time. Looks very elegant. The only negatives so far is that the battery bay cover can be easily knocked out, which happened with me twice while removing the unit from the hot shoe. Also, both units i received had the hot shoe mount in a slight angle off center. I.e., when mounted on the camera, the transceiver points slightly to the left. On a side note, for those of you who own a Canon 5D MK III, I finally found a use for the "disable flash" option when flash is mounted! We all know that when flash is connected to this body, "Auto ISO" is automatically disabled. This also happens when you connect this transceiver. So in order to take advantage of the focus assistance light that comes in the transceiver, and enable the "Auto ISO", you have to choose "disable flash" on the first menu from the left. I hope that makes sense.

    Just received it today and been playing with it with both my Canon Speedlite 430EX II and my cheapo Sunpac Digiflash 3000 for Canon. 1) Works like a charm with the Speedlite, won't fire the Sunpac though. Just be aware that if you are using this trigger with cheap aftermarket flashes it may not work. 2) If you love to shoot 2nd Curtain Flash you won't be able to with the YN622 mounted unless you disable the Wireless Set function on-camera. 3) Love the AF assist light! I can now shoot in low light with no flash!! Just mount the transceiver on the hotshoe and let it do the rest. Love this feature. Setting channels and groups is a cinch. No need to read the manual. 4) Build quality is okay. Hot Shoe is a bit tight so if your flash doesn't fire when you shoot or fires full power despite using ETTL mode on your flash, chances are it's not mounted correctly. Considered this to be the problem with the Sunpac not firing at all, but everything looks solid on the mount. All in all I think the YN622 is pretty good. I wished the length of the transceivers were an inch shorter as the AF source light is about that much farther out than on the Speedlite. Actually more like 2" farther out. Not sure how that affects focus but so far so good. Why 4 and not 5? The transceivers' hot shoe mounts (albeit metal) is kinda tight making removal from my 5D MK II hot shoe a bit tedious at times. I almost think the hot shoe mount on my camera was gonna break if I applied too much pressure to remove the trigger. Maybe some dry lube on the slide rails of the hot shoe may help. Otherwise I'm happy with this purchase and have recommended to my friends who used me as the test bed for this product.

    These are fantastic flash triggers not just for the money but because they work incredibly well with my yongnuo YN568EX flashes. Two triggers with full ETTL, Multi Flash and HSS functionality with a working distance of 100m! The HSS works almost flawlessly with an occasional missed shot when the shutter doesn't quite sync correctly with my 5d mark 3. The triggers have 7 channels and three groups for varying flash output off camera. I use these with a Yongnuo YN-622 flash controller. I use six of these in two groups of three most of the time and I couldn't be happier with the performance. The controls are very intuitive aside from a couple of functions that require pressing and holding buttons. The battery life is excellent as well. The only downside is the hotshoe clamp doesn't secure the trigger as well as I would like. I had one of these fall off an off camera cold shoe with a flash attached onto a hard tile floor. It cost me a flash but the trigger survived. Fortunately the flashes are pretty cheap, but still...be careful if you buy these. Even with the clamping issue I recommend these triggers without reservation.
